What are questions to ask when looking for a nursery or a kindergarten?

In 2019Q3, I was hesitated to send Little Princess to a preschool because: I want to spend more time nurturing and loving her to compensate for the lost days, weeks, months and years for earning a living/saving and the career of her father. I want her immunity to grow stronger as I remember how Little […]

What has Little Princess learned in 2019?

Sometimes, I am worried that Little Princess will not learn as much as her peers who attend a nursery. Herein, I have kept tracked of what she has learned. When time allows, I previewed what she would experience. To allow her to review, I often allow her to re-watch those videos she watched before. For […]

What are our plans for 2019?

I love planning as it gives me hope for the future. Equally important, I must execute my plans, though sometimes they take longer that what I envisioned.

How to minimize our exposure to BPA?

On 20180201 at ~ 1am, due to tiredness, I wrongly switched my PowerPac mini slow cooker instead of my mobile phone charger. At 4.20 am, after being woken up by Little Prince who fell as he was trying to go to the toilet, I realized that a UniMom plastic milk bottle and the lid of […]
